It’s been a while since I was looking forward to a new release, but an even longer time when I was excited about a Lynyrd Skynyrd release. Their new Double CD / DVD will be released on July 24th, titled One More for the Fans. The album was recorded last November 12, 2014, at a live event headlined by Lynyrd Skynyrd, an extraordinary collection of artists came together at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA to perform the music of Skynyrd, one of the most influential bands of our time. The unique concert featured incredible performances by Lynyrd Skynyrd, including an unforgettable rendition of Travelin Man, performed as a duet between Johnny Van Zant and his late brother Ronnie, who appeared via archival video.
Special guests who took the stage that night include Gregg Allman who performed his bluesy version of the classic Tuesday s Gone, Cheap Trick doing Gimme Back My Bullets, Peter Frampton rocking out to Call Me The Breeze, Alabama doing Gimme Three Steps as well as appearances by Trace Adkins, Blackberry Smoke, Charlie Daniels, Gov t Mule, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Randy Houser, Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson, Aaron Lewis, moe., O.A.R., Robert Randolph, Donnie Van Zant and an all-star band led by Don Was, performing songs from Lynyrd Skynyrd s extensive catalog of music.
As part of the campaign to save the Fox Theatre from demolition in 1976, Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded their live album, One More From The Road, at the landmark theatre. The title Lynyrd Skynyrd – One More For The Fans, was inspired by that legendary album s title.
